nature connection

HI, Chris Holland here...  I am a passionate and playful outdoor educator, storyteller and musician.

This site is the home of my inspirational digital media for nature connection and creative, playful outdoor learning. 

I have been helping people of all ages connect with nature, each other and themselves since 2000.

I hope these resources help spread wonder, love and hope for our natural world.
